A photocopier
And Yellow Magic Orchestra
I'm just monkeying around with your furniture
You're losing, you're losing
Your bodily fluids
I got so, I got so, so monosyllabic
Your butchered your setlist
With vocal gymnastics
You swagger
As if you're the hub of their universe
You're off your, you're off your
You're off your bleeding rocker
I'm just monkeying around with your furniture
I'm just monkeying around with your furniture

A photocopier and Yellow Magic Orchestra

And we were just pretending to be Japanese
Yeah we were just pretending to be Japanese
We were just pretending to be Japanese
We were just pretending to be Japanese, yeah

Got to, got to, got to, got to

Sticky sticky uh uh

I flatten your stomach
Like Joseph Pilates
Or scientific discoveries
On lab rats and monkeys
And we were just pretending to be Japanese
Yeah we were just pretending to be Japanese
A grubby little mud with an infant's thesaurus
Je m'appelle David, avez-vous fait un photocopier?
You're off your, you're off your
You're off your bleeding rocker
I'm just monkeying around with your furniture
A photocopier hunts your low magic orchestra
I collected a cappellas and I filed them into genres
April's wearing black, sucking July in the kitchen
I got a slow, a slow, a slow metabolism
The singer of Chicago in 'Electra Glide in Blue'
Legs flapping like the gullwings to heterosexuals
You got me, you got me, barking like a dog yeah

Sticky, sticky, sticky uh uh
Got to got to got to get
Got to got to got to get it from uh uh
Got to got to got to get it from uh huh
We got to uh uh
We got to got to get it from uh uh
Sticky, sticky uh uh
Sticky, sticky uh uh
Sticky, sticky, sticky uh uh
Sticky, sticky, sticky uh uh
Sticky, sticky, sticky uh uh

    General CommentI'm getting:
    A photocopier hunts your low-magic orchestra

    I got so, I got so, some more of syllabic

    you butchered your SETLIST

    harp of their universe

    I flatten your stomach like Joseph(?) pilates

    Je m'appelle David, avez vous fait un photocopier? (My name is David, did you make a photocopier?)



    So yeah, I'm not positive about the word "hunts", but it's definitely "low-magic orchestra", he just puts the accent on the second syllable. I love this song/band.

    General Commenti'm hearing 'i got so, i got so, so monosyllabic'

    and then later 'you got me, you got me, barking like a dog yeah'

    there seem to be too many syllables in the line after 'or scientific discoveries' to be 'on lab rats and monkeys', and the same for 'legs flapping like they're wings to heterosexuals'...but i can't work out what else it could be.

    i also think maybe 'grubby little mod' not 'mud'? but it could just be the pronounciation.

    i adore this song.

    General Commenti think the lab rats/monkeys parts works, but i changed they're wings to the gullwings, it sound more right?

    General CommentWell here are the lyrics as I know them (parts I couldn't figure out have been left out)

    A photocopier and Yellow Magic Orchestra
    I'm just monkeying around with your furniture
    You're losing, you're losing your bodily fluids
    I got so, I got so, so monosyllabic

    You butchered your set list with vocal gymnastics
    You swagger as if you're the hub of their universe
    You're off your, you're off your, you're off your bleeding rocker
    I'm just monkeying around with your furniture

    I'm just monkeying around with your furniture
    A photocopier and Yellow Magic Orchestra

    And we were just pretending to be japanese
    Yeah we were just pretending to be japanese
    We were just pretending to be japanese
    We were just pretending to be japanese yeah

    I'll flatten your stomach like Joseph Pilates
    Scientific discoveries (inaudible) monkeys
    And we were just pretending to be japanese
    Yeah we were just pretending to be japanese

    A grubby little mod with an infant's thesaurus
    Je m'appelle David, avez-vous un photocopieur?
    You're off your, you're off your, you're off your bleeding rocker
    I'm just monkeying around with your furniture

    A photocopier and Yellow Magic Orchestra
    I collected a capellas and I filed them into genres
    April's wearing black, sucking July in the kitchen
    I got a slow a slow a slow metabolism

    The singer of Chicago in Electra Glide in Blue
    (inaudible) heterosexuals
    You got me, you got me barking like a dog, yeah

    General Commentbut why would it be yellow magic orchestra, the rest of the song is about shitty bands, hence 'low magic' ?? of course, their lyrics don't necessarily make a lot of sense, but "a photocopier and yellow magic orchestra" just doesn't seem right to me
